International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Deep ruby. Explosively perfumed bouquet displays black raspberry, cherry preserves and potpourri. Lush and sweet, with palate-staining dark berry flavors, supple tannins, and an exotic floral pastille quality that emerges with air. Extremely seductive and open-knit, finishing with outstanding power and spicy persistence.Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: May/June 2012
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The 2010 Pinot Noir Three Corner wraps around the palate with intense dark black fruit, menthol, spices and licorice. This is one of the most brooding, structured wines in the lineup. Energy, focus and power are some of the many virtues found in the Three Corner. Layers of fruit continue to build in the glass as the wine fills out over time. This is a dazzling effort from Tom Rochioli. The yields here are just 1-1.5 tons per acre.Author: Antonio Galloni
Wine Spectator | Rating: 96Very rich and deeply concentrated, this extraordinary wine is focused on a dense core of blackberry, with a touch of jam, showing hints of raspberry and wilted rose as well. Firm, tight, concentrated and pleasantly tannic, this has a lot going for it.Author: James Laube
